Stanley Cup, what to watch for?

Unread postby Spin » Mon May 30, 2011 11:22 am

A lot of you guys know more about NHL hockey than I, and I'm here to learn. Getting fired up for the Stanley Cup, who is the favorite, what do I look for?

Both goalies terrific but Thomas has been under siege and has been brilliant. A friendly post or two doesn't hurt either.

0-0 pitcher's duel tonight.

59 minutes and 43 seconds of brilliance from Thomas only to give up the ghost with 17 seconds left.

Ouch. Couldn't survive the last of many Bruin turnovers.

Holy crap what a game. Five minutes in we had a four minute power play and a busted plexi. There were four penalties in the first 15 minutes?

I thought we were headed for a shootout. Which sucks, especially in the playoffs.

I hate the other three Boston teams, so how do I root for the Bruins. Gotta go with the Cannucks.

There are no shootouts in the playoffs. Continuous sudden death OT.
